I feel how strongly Ming Jin Woo strove to bring past into the light of the present so as to demystify it or to bridge it to current thought. Past affairs and current day versions becomes lost in the mixed mystery of the Burmese girl’s death and the current breakup. This movie touches on gay rights activism as well as on lingering pain and hurt.  There seems to be no emphasis on too much visual or audio effects, set locations, and time periods because the director is noticeably a jealous man. He wants all attention given to his story. What matters to him is to be able to convey feelings in the most minimal way…no overemphasis on places and circumstances. This self-absorption is what makes this move rhyme like a poem.
